Crist Says Wrongly Imprisoned Man Should, Will Get Paid

March 20th, 2008 by flanews

Lawmakers will have to decide how much a year of life is worth. A proposed bill would pay a man who spent 24 years in a Florida prison for a crime he didn’t committee. Al Crotzer met with Governor Charlie Crist Thursday in Tallahassee, to rally support for a bill that would pay Crotzer more than a million dollars for time served. Crotzer told a group of reporters he wants to give back to the community. But reporters weren’t the only ones asking questions.

“I want to set thing up where I would be able to deal with at risk youth, and trying to ask for a job on the side with criminal justice, with the juvenile justice system,” Crotzer said.

“What would you tell those at risk youth?” asked Crist.

“Make the best of the situation that you can, every chance that you get,” Crotzer responded.

Crist told reporters he thinks the bill will pass.
